To be eligible for scholarships, students must be currently enrolled as an art major and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 overall and a 3.5 GPA in their major in art. Applications are reviewed on the basis of a portfolio of work, essay, resume, and academic record. Scholarship applications are updated yearly and made available in April. Award winners are notified in June.
